• Vice President Doug Kearns on promoting from within: "We recognize good performance and employees who go above and beyond the call of duty. When we had a receptionist who really took ownership of the customers she was helping and setting appointments for, we knew she was just the right person to translate that to the service department. She is now a service adviser, still being a great customer advocate for all the customers she used to set appointments for."
